Sell Your Soul
You may have noticed that while I was in Tanzania for the last month, I posted either not at all, or very little. I had some things like author interviews and reviews set up ahead of time, but left off other things like the bookstore completely. Well, now I’m back. And I can’t wait to tell you about what I did while I was gone.
I want to tell you about Sell Your Soul: How to Build Your Creative Career by Russell Nohelty. Yes, I know this isn’t the week that I normally review a non-fiction book, but I couldn’t wait on this one. I read this book three times while I was on vacation. Yes, three times. Every time I needed a palette cleanser between the Bad Boy/Billionaire/Biker/Boyfriend romances, I would re-read Russell’s book. Why? Because, like most life changing books, it’s all about thinking correctly.
Russell tackles many of the misconceptions that creative people have about selling their work. He teaches you how to make a business out of your art without feeling like you’re selling out to commercialism or The Man or anyone else. He teaches how to maintain the purity of your art, while also making a living from it. Russell is a comic book artist who has gone on to write novels and sells all sorts of things. He makes a respectable living being the artist he wishes to be. And that’s what this book is about: setting your thinking onto a path that’s profitable.
In fact, I loved Russell’s book so much, I contacted him and we began chatting. It turns out, he has courses available on Teachable to help authors and other artists succeed at business. I am happy to announce that I AM partnering with Russell and his school. You can save 10% off all of his courses with coupon ADRIEL10 until April 15th by signing up here.
I only post reviews for books I am not connected with. If I beta read or edited the book, or work as a virtual assistant for the author, I do not post a review. However, authors occasionally send me books to review.
Projected* schedule for Book Reviews for 2018:
1st Monday: Fantasy or Sci-Fi (what I read the most)
2nd Monday: Random book (could be anything, but expect a lot of mysteries)
3rd Monday: Romance (might have sex, but will not be any relationship that is not MF)
4th Monday: Non-Fiction (inspirational, biographies, instructional)
*Due to LIFE being a factor in my life, this schedule might not actually happen.

Hello! I’m Adriel Wiggins, wife, mother of three, bibliophile, art geek, and all around student. I’ve been on a quest all of my life to learn as much as I possibly can about everything I possibly can. This has helped me tremendously in what eventually became my life’s purpose: to help other people become the best version of themselves. It is in that line that I became an assistant.
